Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. My Brothers and Sisters in Islam as we are in the 16th day of Ramadan, I wanted to share something important about the Quran. And there is one activity that we are supposed to engage with when we read the Quran, and that is known as the brutal Quran, pondering and reflecting over the Quran. And this is mentioned in about three places of the Quran. In surah Nisa, Allah subhanahu wa taala he says, addressing the disbelievers affiliate at the balloon and Quran while Oh can I mean I'm delighted that he loads up his telephone cathedra Allah azza wa jal addresses the disbelievers in specific and he says, Why don't they reflect and ponder
over the Quran? Had it been from other than Allah, they would have found a tremendous amount of contradiction within it. So the first mention of the double Quran was an address to the disbelievers. Allah azza wa jal is challenging them to find something wrong in this Quran to find the contradiction in this Quran. The other challenge that we find when the word double comes Allah azza wa jal now addresses the moon if you call the hypocrites insolate Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah azza wa jal Li says, I fell at the balloon on Quran Amala Kulu Ben Luhan Allah azza wa jal addresses the hypocrites and he says why don't why don't they ponder and reflect over the Quran?
Or is it the case that there are locks and seals on the heart? You see, what we learned from this is that when a person ponders and reflect over the Quran, it is a means to unlock the heart it brings life to the heart it revives the heart. This is what the pondering and reflecting over the Quran does. And then in Surah Surah, Allah azza wa jal now addresses the believers. He addresses the believers what is our relationship with the Quran Quran with pondering and reflecting over the Quran? He says Kitab and Zilla who ileka Mobile icon Lee at the bottle at only at the Ricardo Al Bab, Allah azza wa jal in Surah trod he said, This is a book that we have revealed unto the
messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam what for Leah, the blue AR t so that they ponder and reflect over eats. As you see the believers are supposed to reflect and ponder over each and every single area. And this is what you want to achieve in Ramadan, and after Ramadan. And we need to master this art of the Buddha, reflecting and pondering, and this is what I want to share with you. Now in a few minutes. How do we do this? How do we ponder and reflect over the Quran? Listen and learn very carefully. Imam Al Hassan Al Basri Rahim Allah He said, one method up brew tea elaborative airy, and hustle and bustle of Allah. He says, The pondering over the age that is to implement the aid and
follow the AF in your life. This is how we ponder over the eight. So when you read an ayah in the Quran, in which Allah azza wa jal commands us to do something, or to abstain and avoid something, then when we follow Allah's command, we are actually pondering over the idea and we are reflecting over the idea. This is incredible. I'll give you a new and another example. And this is mentioned by Shekar Friedel on Saudi Arabia Hola. He gives a beautiful, a beautiful explanation to the brutal Quran pondering over the Quran and reflecting over it. He says Firstly, a person should internalize when he reads the Quran and feel that this is Allah's word. It is coming down from Allah who is
above the harsh and it is given to breathe. And she breathed in travels with these eight through the paradise through the seven heavens all the way until he reaches the Earth and mounts onto the heart of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he reveals the ayat on TM Allahu Akbar. So that's the first thing you need to do you need to internalize that this is Allah's word that has traveled from Allah all the way until it reached Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Then when you read an ayah in the Quran, let's say you read in a adult Allah's mercy and His forgiveness, and then you pause for a moment, and you began to ask Allah for His mercy and His forgiveness. This is how
you ponder over the Quran. At this moment, you are doing the brutal Quran. And if you read an area about Allah, Allah solutions, punishment, and the description of the Hellfire, and you pause for a moment, and you ask the last version to save you from the hellfire. And these eight increased your fear of Allah azza wa jal, you are now pondering and reflecting over the AI Allahu Akbar. If you read an idea about Allah's mercy, and it increased your love for Allah
Social, you are now pondering over the age and reflecting over the age that is at the bottom, my brothers and sisters in Islam. When you read an idea about a sadaqa about donation, when you read an idea about donation, and it motivates you, it inspires you to give a soda that day or that very moment. This is what the Quran Quran is about. This is exactly what it is. And this is why the Quran was revealed. Now, if you read an idea and your thought cool your reliance upon Allah increases your trust in Allah and increases your faith in Allah increases, then this is exactly what the Quran is, this is it nothing else. So we ask Allah azza wa jal to instill within us the love for the Quran,

This is exactly what reflection over the Quran is. We ask Allah azza wa jal to grant us mercy and forgiveness to ask him subhanaw taala to forgive our sins and shortcomings.
